If you took the time to read my about me page then you might have noticed I've had the opportunity to apprentice under Brian Boggs and take classes under Paul Sellers; collectively, these are the best experiences I've had as a furniture maker. For some reason, I always feel compelled to clarify that my apprenticeship with Brian was only 3 months, but man I learned so much in that short time; I especially learned more than I wanted about long hours in the Kentucky woods harvesting hickory bark! I hate to admit that I have not done well in keeping up these two men. Brian and I stayed in touch for many years but over the past 3-4 years that's died off and I haven't spoken to Paul since he moved to England many years ago. I do hope to visit Paul in the future...possibly a YouTube collaboration?!
